Social responsibility and sustainable undertakings are more than just the improvement of one’s production and sales process. In fact it could be better expressed as 'a break with business as usual'.
MatureDevelopment believes that in order to work in a sustainable manner one must be conscious of the global economy.
This small Dutch enterprise which actively works with the development of innovative and sustainable ideas, is also involved with the implementing and further development of these innovations.
The aim of these innovations is to contribute to the future so that even those who, until now, have not had the opportunity to profit from technology will be able to lead a sustainable lifestyle.
MatureDevelopment (MD) is active in the global seafood industry. Global clients request for technology, business development and scale up interim management. As the European representative of the Global active Association of International Seafood Professionals (AISP) professionals for Middle East and Africa we connect the industry insights and competences with professionals.
The founder of MatureDevelopment, Paul is member of the steering committee of the Seafood Partnership Alliance, Denmark. This alliance of experienced European seafood professionals offers presentations and lectures in conferences and develop workshops for C-level professionals in seafood.
The company located in the World Trade Center The Hague, The Netherlands, facilitates Paul as the (voluntary) European ambassador of Aquaculture without Frontiers (AwF) and supports donation to this Global Independent Non-Profit Organization to alleviate poverty in developing countries.
MD has a strong business focus on seafood, especially aquaculture, fish nutrition & health. The nutritional science and functional development of feed formulations are researched and developed in consortia with universities, world class scientists and operation professionals. In addition to the nutritional aspects, one of the strategies is the development of fish and shrimp microbiome optimizations.
Prebiotics are a focus. Prebiotics are defined as non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by stimulating the growth and/or activity of beneficial bacteria in the colon, the microbiome. Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) belong to the group of prebiotics and is in our R&D interest.
Our fish prebiotic chemistry and applications deals with experimental and theoretical approaches and scenarios towards an understanding of how biologically relevant molecules may have been formed and how they may have developed into protocellular systems, which eventually led to the origin of life.
As a result of a number of studies, certain progress has been made during the last couple of years in different areas that belong to the essential pieces of the big puzzle of understanding the origin of the first living systems and understanding the value for fish health improvement! Using these insights and applying prebiotics in fish and shrimp business performance, creates a competitive sustainable edge in aquaculture. MD has strong cooperation agreements with renowned international scientists, universities and institutes.
Innovations are necessary to fulfill changing societal needs, support sustainable development and create societal resilience. The utilization of such potential depends in large extent on the governance and management of innovations on both organization- and system level. However, increased specialization, organizational interdependency and attention for social and environmental values have increased complexity within the systems in which organizations operate.
Due to increased system complexity, traditional governance and management approaches are characterized by reduced predictability and effectiveness. In order to improve on these traditional attempts, the system of innovation approach (SI) has been gaining much interest in scientific and managerial circles over the past decades in describing innovation dynamics of complex systems. Innovation systems are networks of organizations that are directly or indirectly involved in the creation, diffusion, use, coordination and support of scientific and technological knowledge.
Information is not only important to fulfill today's tasks and business processes, information is every day converted into knowledge which is the input information of tomorrow. Access to this knowledge is critical to develop viable and sustainable businesses. With the support of today's technology, the opportunity is created to capture and have access to this knowledge on any time and in any form.
MatureDevelopment focusses on the development of interaction between people and technology to improve efficiency and effectivity of information. This with the result of reducing complexity when a project has to be realized and governance is at stake. We made the choice to value co-creation with other competent organizations where our practical and result oriented approach is valued.
Dissemination of results is important to generate interest at the industry, generate business development. Blockchain Technologies are applied in development of Transparency in feed value chains.
